Talk of session: Floating Solar Power I: Expanding Onshore and Emerging Offshore

Floating PV (FPV) has become established as an alternative PV power plant application for regions that either have space constraints or that are looking to protect water reservoirs from pollution and evaporation. As total FPV onshore deployment worldwide is expected to reach double-digit GW output soon, the industry has started looking at the almost endless surface of the oceans in response to the limited potential of onshore development.

This session will discuss:

  • The status of the global floating PV market
  • Lessons learned from developing and operating the first gigawatt PV projects on the water
  • How to tap into the massive offshore FPV potential
